Independent Film Movement Series: Jasper Jones

by Emily M | May 16, 2018
You are invited to join us the first Wednesday of each month to view an independent or foreign film as a part of our Independent Film Movement Series.  In June, we will be featuring Jasper Jones, based on the iconic Australian novel by Craig Silvey.

Jasper Jones is a riveting and moving Australian coming of age story about Charlie Bucktin, a bookish boy of 14. On the night that Jasper Jones, the town's mixed race outcast shows him the dead body of young Laura Wishheart, Charlie's life is changed forever. Entrusted with this secret and believing Jasper to be innocent, Charlie embarks on a dangerous journey to find the true killer. Set over the scorching summer holidays of 1968, Charlie defeats the local racists, faces the breakup of his parents and falls head over heels in love as he discovers what it means to be truly courageous. 

Starring: Toni Collette, (United States of Tara), Hugo Weaving (The Lord of the Rings, Matrix), and Angourie Rice (Spider-Man: Homecoming)
